Perhaps you wonder about all the short posts. Everything is dandy here, I just haven't had anything happen that was "blogworthy". Our weather is warm one day, cold the next. I run into at least two people a week who say, "No wonder everybody is sick."
I always have to smile at this negative statement because everybody isn't sick! Cliff and I have not even had the sniffles this winter. If we come down with something at this point, I would still say we beat the odds by going so long with no sickness. Yes, I realize that some schools have had to close because of some sort of outbreak of an intestinal virus. Things happen, germs are everywhere. I truly doubt it was the weather that causes it.
We have been spoiled this winter with unseasonable warmth, so when there's a chilly, windy day like yesterday, I freeze. Ticks will likely have a heyday this summer because of the mild winter. My main concern is about the extremely dry conditions. Again, it's the weather and it is going to do what it's going to do; there's no use worrying about it.
Bonnie-the-Jersey-cow is still at Higginsville with the bull. Cliff's brother suggested we leave her and her son there a month, so that if she is indeed cycling, she will have had two chances to score. I do miss the old loudmouth bawling at me any time I approach the barn, and I hate buying store-bought milk. She will return home next weekend.
The books I've read this week: Dark of the Moon by John Sandford and Holy Ghost girl, written by a woman whose mother left everything to follow a Pentecostal tent revivalist, David Terrell. She started as an organ-player and ended up being one of his "wives". A rather upsetting book, really. I know he's still preaching, because I googled his name. There are clips of him on Youtube.
